Local senior earns perfect SAT scores

November 4, 2008 6:29:01 PM PST
A Clear Brook High School senior is celebrating a perfect score on not one, but three SAT subject tests. Cindy Au scored a perfect 800 on Chemistry, Biology and Physics."She is quite a whiz kid and we are very fortunate to have her in our school," said Physics teacher Tina Harrell. When Cindy Au got her SAT scores back she told her teacher, "It is the happiest day of my life."

To put Au's score of 800 in perspective, consider this: according to the College Board more than 36,000 college bound seniors take the SAT subject area tests in biology or physics each year and 62,000 take the chemistry subject test. Of those students the average score on these tests is just over 600.
